What people are saying about Phuket

I had a really interesting morning joining the cooking class. After being picked up from the hotel we drove to the local market to pick the ingredients for the meals we were going to prepare. As I was the only participant that morning, I was extremely happy that the class wasn't postponed or even cancelled. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the recipes and the set up of how the preparations would be done were well organized. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in learning a few basics of thai cooking in a very comfortable setting. I had a great time with the owner who is very knowledgeable and personable.

Did the shopping and preparation from scratch. Was informing and entertaining. We made several dishes and the instruction was comprehensive and quick enough. Of course the eating of our complete dishes showed the quality of the food and the competence we acquired.

Picking up went perfectly. Already learned a lot about the ingredients in the market. Great authentic cuisine and "step by step" explanation. Food tasted good too !. Very good course

A great experience, great hosts. Still making the food items that we learned. Well worth the money.

Fantastic half day with Karn. Learned a lot and food was delicious.
